LONDON — Fake guns were confiscated from costume-clad enthusiasts before they entered London's MCM Comic Con over the weekend due to Britain's strict firearms laws.

Many of the 130,000 people who attended the three-day convention brought imitation weapons. But while blasters, battle axes and other cosplay accessories were permitted, imitation guns were seized or tagged for being indistinguishable from the real thing.

Black plastic pistols required an orange or red cap placed at the end of their muzzles and unloaded BB guns were allowed only with a license. Decommissioned guns were confiscated at the door and were only given back if the owner had a licence.


Needing permission from the state to have a toy gun or BB gun cements the argument that a some of these gun control people are cracked, that there assertion that they are sensible is delusion. Then it just becomes an argument on where to draw the line. A good number of people think that the line is mostly fine where it is.

"If it's a toy you should still handle it like it's the real thing," said 24-year-old Tom Scuffer, holding an EE 3 carbine rifle belonging to "Star Wars" bounty hunter Boba Fett. "I won't even put my finger on the trigger for photos and in a controlled situation like this it's fine."

Barf. Do you remember when men were men? It is getting increasingly difficult to remember.
